I have been told that my face says it all.
Whatever the emotion, obviously I am an open book.
The 7th cranial nerve controls facial expressions. Mine must be huge! (Info learned from The Good Doctor 3.19.2018)
I’ve never really thought anything about it…..until recently.
Last week I was in a social situation.
A friend came up to me.
This friend said, “I’ve learned to read you and I can tell that you don’t care for ___________ (a persons name entered here)
I was stunned.
The truth is……
The person in question, I’m sure is a nice person. I am sure he/she is a good friend.
My attitude or in this case, facial expression has to do with tardiness and lack of respect. These qualities are not towards me but towards another person. Why do I care? Why should I let something that happens to another bother me?
Disrespecting me or someone around me is a big deal. I just don’t do well with it. I find it rude and unnecessary. Everyone and I mean everyone has a life. Whether it be someone with an important career or a stay at home Mom with babies. You might be a caregiver, or a salesman. You might mow lawns or be a public servant.
The title doesn’t matter. Everyone matters and disrespect is sign of weakness. My opinion of course.
Back peddle………. even if he/she did nothing directly to me, should I have judged him/her on their negative quality? Or should I love them enough to look past the ugly and see the beauty?
I will from now on, watch my attitude and think very carefully about my facial expressions. I want to be more like Christ and not allow my weakness to get the best of me or to be a negative example to those around me. I will learn from lessons brought to my attention. It will remind me get my heart back in place and love the people who are put into my path.
However these expressions will not change
